Makes technical changes in a Section concerning the short title of the Act.HB 2660, as amended by House Amendment 1, provides that a portion of the proceeds of a $10 billion bond issuance will be added to the assets of the State retirement systems, in proportion to their current assets. In effect, this action would substantially increase the FY 2004 State contributions to the State-funded retirement systems. These additional FY 2004 contributions could substantially decrease required annual employer contributions to the systems in FY 2005 and beyond. The estimated changes in the annual employer contributions have not yet been calculated.

Any fiscal impact would be the result of the interest rate being set at only 3% annually.
